Eduardo's
The signs say "Charlie Biggs", but there is an "Eduardo's" sign in plain text letters on the front door.This is on the north side of Raymond, between Keystone and Churchman. Look for the Burger King, and it's in between Burger King and Keystone Ave.It pretty much looks like an inner-city fried chicken joint, but it is very clean, including the unisex bathroom. The staples or main offerings are fried chicken and fried fish, but... the big "secret" is their Filipino cuisine. You won't know it's Filipino until you go in and read the menu.One time I had a fried-chicken (American style) combo dinner, with deep fried potato wedges and a cole-slaw side, and it was excellent for a fried-chicken place; crisp on the outside, and tender and juicy, cooked-just-right, on the inside.Another time I had a sample platter of the "menudo" (which is not at all like Mexican or Hispanic menudo, and some "adobo", served over white rice. EXCELLENT! Both of those are pork dishes, I was told. I then had some "Lumpia" small Filipino egg rolls, stuffed with pork. That, and the barbecued pork-on-a-stick are about all the Filipino food they serve during the week.The lady said they have more Filipino cuisine on the weekends.Eduardo's is the main caterer for the Filipino Association (Barangay club) booth at the International Festival. So if you like their food there, you ought to like it at Eduardo's on the weekends.One time I was there they were serving more Filipino cuisine than the adobo/menudo, but it was a special order for a group of Filipinos celebrating someone's birthday. So apparently if you have a group of 7 or more, and arrange with them in advance, they can cater it for dine-in or take out. Otherwise, wait for the weekend. Our group sat next to the birthday group, and we were constantly stealing glances, envying their food.The dining area gets chilly when the exhaust fans are running in the kitchen, and it pulls in the cold air. So dress warmly if you eat in during cold weather.The dining area consists of four tables-for-4, and a counter which seats 3 people. Both times there was a steady stream of take-out customers for the chicken. Though there was one caucasian gentleman who also asked for the Filipino cuisine for take-out.I think this family is doing it right: Their bread-and-butter business is what the working-class neighborhood wants, fried chicken and fish, which pays the bills. But what they love, and enjoy sharing is the Filipino cuisine. (The party of seven celebrating someone's birthday were professional folks who obviously had connections to the owners.) But there is probably not enough demand for a 100% Filipino restaurant to stay in business.Last I checked, they closed at 7pm on weekdays in the winter, so call to check if you want to go later.As far as I know, this is the only Filipino restaurant in the greater Indianapolis metro area.

Himalaya Kabob Korner
This is on the North side of 82nd Street, in front of the Castleton Square mall. It's on the back (North) side of a little out-lot, so you can't see it from 82nd street. You can see "Casual Male" from the street, and Kabob Korner is directly behind it, on the other side of that building.Look for the National City Bank, and turn North there, as if you're going into the mall. Then go right (East), and it's just past Long John Silver's.They close from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, so remember that when you visit.You walk up to the counter to place your order and pay. They bring your food out to your table on a tray and plastic plates. You have to get your own plastic utensils, napkins, and water from the counter.Menu is limited, and posted on a board behind the counter. Kabobs come in sirloin beef, lamb, ground beef, and chicken, and then there are three other entrees. Entrees come with side of long grain rice (basmati I think) and small dinner salad. I really liked the dressing on the salad.Drinks include ice water (self serve), and bottled water/soda/tea, and hot coffee.Prices are good and food quality is worth going out of your way for. It's kind of set up on a fast-food arrangement, so the overall "dining experience" isn't impressive, but the food does impress.The owner works as the cashier, cook, and waiter, and is very personable.Dining area and men's room were very clean.

Castleton Grill
Im a huge Foodie, Gourmet, Gormand, and world traveler who fell on this wonderful place thanks to the will to find unique "one-sy" when I travel and happened to be working and staying nearby. Absolutey one of the best ribeyes ever, cooked perfectly Pittsburgh style with a rare/rare medium just the way it should be and I must say my first and last visit to "the Famous Pete Luger's" didnt come close or compare. Sides were off the chain, esp the house brussels. Becky the bartender was awesome!! Brought clients in the after amd they raved was amazing!! We could cut our steaks with a fork they were so tender. Im back in town and going there tonight!! Its a do not miss in my book. Signed Happy Food Dancer����

Boathouse Grill
Well who ever wrote the other report with 1 star must have their own bar somewhere else. This place is great. Yes there are some of the same people there including me, but when you get great food , service at a reasonable rate why not go back. The staff make every effort to get to know the customers and be very helpful. I have been going there for years and will continue going there. If you want a great sandwich on the NW side then this is the place to go. You will be glad you did and then wonder who the idiot is that gave the place only 1 star and where his restaurant is. Its obvious he is trying to draw the customers from here .

Cheeseburger in Paradise
Honestly, I don't get it. This chain is "so-so" at best. .... You have to wait forever to get a mediocre burger (or whatever) that you can get almost anywhere else for less money and hassle. .... I like Jimmy Buffet as well as the next guy. And I LOVE to eat good food but come on!!!! .... Go to Hardees and take home a "Monster Thickburger", crack open a couple Coronas, crank-up "Songs you know by heart", and save a ton of money and aggravation!!!

Emporium 40 Flea Market
Formerly the Festival Flea Market at W Washington St and 465, it was taken over in the summer of 2013 by the owners of the Emporium Flea Markets in Greenwood and Beech Grove.Gone is the dingy atmosphere and vendors who lived in their booths mostly selling bootleg cds and dvds. It is now bright, roomy, and filling up fast with quality vendors.Come take a look - again - and you will keep coming back! Open 7 days a week from roughly 10 to 7.

We LOVE this restaurant!!! Their food is wonderful and Nick is AMAZING! I don't know how he keeps the prices so low and the food so good! We have been going there since the 90's and have NEVER had a bad experience. Anyone who has an issue only needs to let Nick know and he will make it right! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Speedway
I like this Speedway because the people behind the counter seem very friendly. If there are more than two people in line, they open up a new register and they always jump on the fountain drink lines that have run out...hey, I appreciate that when I really, really, really want a Diet Dew!

Castleton Grill
Imagine an up-scale Applebees. ..... A family-owned restaurant right smack dab in the middle of "chain-city" (Castleton)!!! .... Food is great, the prices are good, and they have a nice little bar with a pretty good selection. ..... Fresh spit-roasted roast beef on the weekends too!!!
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
